Meanwhile, EYMS has said it will put extra buses on tomorrow to get people to Bridlington Scooter Rally events.

A statement on its website said: "There will be extra Service 14 buses on standby to bring people from Flamborough and Thornwick Bay into Bridlington, as these buses were very busy last year.

"We'll also be doing a special diversion for Service 136 so that it serves Park Rose Holiday Village and Caravan Park. The Service 136 will pick up from Park Rose, on Carnaby Sticks, at the end of the drive from Park Rose, at 10.36am and 1.36pm, to take you into Bridlington.

"The Service 136 buses back from Bridlington will divert to serve Park Rose on request."

There have been changes to arrangements for the rally weekend because of the road closure on West Street.
